Jerry Jones won't stop fighting owners in Roger Goodell talks

"He's served about 60 percent, roughly, 65 percent of this contract", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per Todd Archer of ESPN.

According to the New York Times (h/t ESPN.com), the NFL's compensation committee has issued a cease-and-desist warning to Jones regarding his threat to sue the National Football League over Goodell's contract negotiations.

The Times report meshes with what CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday: Some owners are starting to turn on Jones because, according to sources, "his attacks on commissioner Roger Goodell are being seen by his peers as a direct reaction to his anger of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension and are diminishing his respect and influence among other owners".

Falcons owner Arthur Blank pushed Jones off of the compensation committee, even though Jones' role was an unofficial one.

Jerry Jones says claims of a secret plan to force him to give up control of the Dallas Cowboys are "laughable and ridiculous". and says the idea of an overthrow is just plain silly.

"The committee that basically negotiates salary with our commissioner is taking the view, especially the chairman, that they in a limited group can complete this agreement".

Jones on Tuesday suggested that he won't back down. Goodell's contract is set to expire after the 2018 season.

The NFL competition committee reportedly sent a cease-and-desist warning to Jones over his intervention in contract talks.

The range of punishments, according to the Times, includes fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, who has owned the Cowboys since 1989.

Elliott was originally suspended by the NFL on August 11 for violating the league's personal conduct policy over domestic violence allegations dating back to 2016. He'll miss three more games before his next schedule court date on December 1.
